About Sean True Photography

North Carolina Wedding Photographer

Why choose Sean True Photography?

Wedding Photography is one of the only tangible goods you can keep forever from your wedding day, why not look for the best? I want your wedding experience to be a photographic journey with compelling images that will make you, your family and friends say “WOW”! I use all my photography skills to make your wedding photos unique, special and full of emotion. If you’re looking for the best experience that is both professional and fun then you need to look no further than Sean True Photography!

Just as important as the photography itself, I take pride on delivering exceptional service and creating an easy-going and stress-free experience. I’ll help you with every stage of the planning process and I'm always available to talk about ideas and your wedding timeline should it be via phone, text, email or in-person. By using me as your photographer, you have selected a unique wedding photography experience with images that will retell the story of your special day in a way no one else can capture. I take an artistic approach to create bold and vibrant photos using both environmental and photojournalist techniques to capture real moments and emotions. I started my career as a documentary photojournalist and I take a similar approach to wedding photography capturing candid, non-obtrusive and real photographs. You’ve worked countless hours creating your dream wedding, so all the details from your special day that you have crafted, I will be there with a camera to make sure they are captured forever. Whether it’s remembering the cake or the table decorations, or seeing the first kiss again, I’m ready with my camera so you will never forget the details, the big and the small!

Next, I’m a full-time professional photographer. That may seem like an obvious point, but it’s really not anymore. You have enough to worry about without having to worry about your photographer and with me you are in good hands, start to finish. I use the very best equipment, I'm fully licensed and insured, and deliver in a timely manner. Professionalism is a dying concept as the market becomes saturated with people who don’t take the steps necessary to insure they can deliver great images every time. Whomever you choose to be your wedding photographer, even if it’s not me, make sure they are a reputable professional so there won’t be any surprises.

Then there’s certification. Only 6% of the photographers in the Professional Photographers Association of America are Certified Professional Photographers. It’s not easy. There’s a big written test with about 100 questions and then you have to submit images for peer review by other certified photographers who decide if you’re good enough. It’s pretty intense.

Reputation is important. I’m an award-winning photographer both Internationally and locally. I'm a proud member of The Professional Photographers Association of America and Professional Photographers Association of North Carolina .

Life can be pretty hectic and it’s tempting to just ask a bunch of photographers for quotes and “pick a price.” Don’t give into temptation. You need to see the albums and products to compare their quality. See, touch and feel the products. We welcome you to do that with our products and we stand behind ours for life. You also need to meet your photographer and make sure you are comfortable with she/he because she/he will be with you all day on the biggest day of your life.

Last but not least...I'm someone who loves to laugh, dances awkwardly at weddings (yes, I sometimes get caught up in the shenanigans), loves great coffee (black please), local craft beer (the hoppier the better) and North Carolina BBQ (just the meat, no buns please). So if you liked what you've seen and read, then let's talk over a coffee or a craft beer.

Cheers! Sean

    Best Day Ever

    Sean was very friendly and easy to work with from the first time we met until the end of our wedding day! He and his team went above and beyond to make our day SO special and unique. He catered to all of our requests and our pictures turned out better than I could have ever imagined! He and his team worked so hard to capture every detail of our day, and his dedication (even after getting a flat tire on the way to the venue) was very evident. If you’re skeptical about finding a photographer for your big day, look no further than Sean True!

    Book sean - you wont regret it!

    I found Sean online and am SO happy that I decided to move forward with his services. He was AMAZING on the day of the wedding and made us all feel so comfortable. He was also VERY quick with the images but did not sacrifice any detail or any professionalism in getting the shots done. All the images were beautiful, and I was surprised by how many images and details that he captures of the day that I hadn't asked him to capture. The images are BEAUTIFUL and the turn around on the images was perfect!

    He has such an eye for detail and wasn't rigid when I asked for specific shots on the day of as he was super nice and flexible and had a great sense of humor. He got the shots immediately without having to stage anyone, yet he still offered quick guidance such as moving up a little closer, putting hands around each other, or tilting heads, which I really appreciated after seeing the end result. He would also say things like 'fix the back of your jacket, or move your hair' which I SO appreciated, because the end results were clean and flawless.

    Sean, thank you so SO much for capturing our wedding day and literally sending over 800 shots of our day. The images are beautiful and you went above and beyond on the wedding day even staying past the cutoff time to capture some additional images. WOW! Great customer service and fantastic eye. You are extremely talented and Again, how fast you are at getting the right picture is SO key because so many photographers take too much time staging you and it eats into the cocktail hour time and will take up time in general, but if you choose Sean you will have the amazing photos and time with your family and friends. I will DEFINITELY RECOMMEND.

    Thank you SO much!
    A & S
